LANSING, Mich. — State Sen. Ken Horn, R-Frankenmuth, began his “Hometown Tours” visits Monday afternoon with a stop in the community of Linden.
“Linden is a perfect example of the quaint, historic towns in my district that I want to focus these tours on,” Horn said. “From the Linden Mill Museum to the walk through the historic buildings downtown, it was a truly enjoyable experience. The goal of these tours is to build relationships and learn more about the unique characteristics of each community I represent.”
The tour of the city began downtown by visiting various landmarks of significance. Horn made stops at the fire station, city hall and the site of the former Union Block that was lost to a fire in 2007.
The tour of downtown was followed by a presentation and tour of the Linden Mill Museum given by David and Barbara Kincaid, the museum curators. After the museum tour, Horn attended a dinner reception for volunteers and employees of the city of Linden.
“There are so many people I want to thank for helping me make my first ‘Hometown Tour’ a success,” Horn said. “I want to personally thank the Kincaid family for their time and for giving me a fantastic tour of the community and the museum. I also want to thank Mayor David Lossing, who has been incredibly generous inviting me to events in the community. I’ve learned a great deal about the residents and history of Linden and will most certainly be visiting again.”
